i need a yz 450. i am split between an 03 and an 04. i was told the 04 is 4 pounds lighter than the 03, what is the actual difference in wieght?
the only other reason i would want an 04 is the larger set of forks. are they that much better, as far as bottoming goes?
any differences in the engine?
i want the lightest bike i can get, but an 05 or 06 isnt an option. i am leaning toward an 04, can anyone with an 03/04 tell me which is best? :thumbsup:

i have an 04 and i had an 03yz250.i hated the forks on the 250. the forks on the 04 do have a better bottoming out resistance and they feel more stable. if you could get an 04 for a good deal then do it. i did and i have a big smile on my face. :thumbsup:

that my biggest complaint about my 00, the fork just cant deal with the big jumps. i guess its about 1/2 the wieght problem and 1/2 a bad fork design. i need better control up front.
